Faro (Beach) — Praia de Faro obviously has two sides, the lagoon side and the seafaring side. The lagoon side is really attractive, with colorful boats bobbing on the water and moored on the slipways. The water is safe for swimming in the lagoon, but it is also a very popular area for various water sports – jet skis in particular. The beach on the seaward side is a magnificent long stretch of golden sand. It is flat and easily accessible from the paved promenade that runs behind the beach. There are all sorts of water sports available at Praia de Faro like windsurfing, sailing and jet ski and plenty of room to give it a go!
